Those boobs were made for tweeting, and that’s just what they’ll do. This is what we’ve learned from Boobquake 2010, still in progress as this post was being written.

As you may already know, Boobquake is the breast — err, brain — child of blogger Jen McCreight, who decided the best way to respond to an Iranian cleric who declared female immodesty caused earthquakes was by urging women to display their God- and/or augmentation specialist-given gifts to the world, and then see what shook out.

The results so far: A 6.9 temblor in Taiwan, and scattered reports of shaking and rumbling across America. Given the quantity and quality of boobage on display today, we’re expecting a lot more bodacious tectonics before the day is done.

This is, of course, the best damned idea since Steak and a Blowjob Day. Naturally, some women disagreed, and started a competing event called Brainquake.

The results so far:

Naturally, Boobquake 2010 has been jiggling bouncing trending topic on Twitter. Here’s a slice of what the Twitterati have to say about the matter:

1. @TheBloggess: Just described my boobs to a blind man. I’m doing God’s work here, people.

Bless you. But if you were really doing God’s work you’d let him use the Braille method.

2. @Lynn_H_I: Info for large breasted ladies: If you are having difficulties posting pics on #boobquake day, adjust your download rate to DD or above.

Ah, so that’s the problem. We had our cable modem set to C cup. Thanx.

3. @SugarTwittes: I have been asked to participate in #boobquake, my LOVE for is humanity is TOO great, do not want to DESTROY the planet.

We’re thinking of nominating you for the Nobel Peace Prize. But first we need to see your tits.

4. @Negarpontifiles: Check out Pamela Taylor’s poem on the occasion of #brainquake

Hmm. Let me think. Boobs or poetry? God that’s a tough one.

5. @highlyanne: #boobquake and #brainquake are not incompatible. I gave a lecture on groundwater chemistry while wearing a low-cut dress.

Damn. Where were you when we were in college? Now I want my tuition money back.

6. @Sianiipops: I unknowlingly joined the #boobquake today! Assuming it didnt contribute to a natural disaster so I shall continue whacking the baps out!

‘Whacking the baps out’? We have no idea what that means, but we think we like it.

7. @alisavino: Anyone else amused/disturbed that "Boobquake" is a trending topic in DC but not in LA right now?

Hey, we’ve always said there are more boobs in Washington DC than anywhere else on the planet.

8. @robbykarol: So, guys who RSVPed Boobquake on Facebook, you realize it makes you look creepy/desperate, right?

Yes. Yes it does. But we know you’ll be attending, just the same.

9. @Winyder: Actually surprised no guys have said anything about a Boobquake Relief Effort.

Done. We’re starting one right now. Please send donations to

10. @citythatbreeds: #boobquake #boobquake #boobquake #boobquake #boobquake #boobquake #boobquake #boobquake #boobquake

Breath, dude, breath. Somebody needs to put their wallet in your mouth before you swallow your tongue.

11. @margaretmaryy: Why yes–I will lend my breasts to science! Let’s all partake in Boobquake ’10 and see what happens.

That’s great. Since you’re in a lending mood, can we borrow them for the weekend?

12. @pzmyers: Brace yourself: It’s the day of the Boobquake. It’s amazing how much press this event is getting.

Not from us. We would never dream of stooping so low.
